Remove the Full Path of a PDB File in a DLL

Hello,

Does anyone know how to remove the full path of a PDB file from a C# dll or exe file?

I noticed that the full path where my project is stored in my computer shows up whenever a debug error shows up. We do not install the PDB files anyway, but we keep them in case we need to debug a crash dump. So there's no need to hard code the exact location of them in my computer in the dll file.

I even changed the project configuration mode from Debug to Release and the pdb path is still there.  Is there any way to get rid of it?

Thanks.

T.

You could disable PDB file generation for Release mode

Go to Project Properties -> Build -> Select Release -> (On bottom right you )Advanced...->Debug Info-> None

Also Please note that, when you leave PDF file with your assembly it gets loaded anyways and it adds a small performance impact.
